On Vacation/Moving

For those who follow the blog closely, this is old news... I'm on vacation for about a week and then I'm moving to North Dakota for a few months. The blog will be updated much less during this time but will return back to normal once I get to ND. Thanks to those who visit despite this.

Select Match Reviews: Clusterfuck in a Cage

Match from IWRG Torneo FILL 81 05/20 1.Apuesta,cage: Gym FILL vs Gym Argentino ** Thoughts: Lucha cage matches tend to be mediocre at best. So, why am I doing this to myself? Well, the cibernetico was fun and I wanted to see how they followed it up. Random blows among the mass of humanity, like a spastic riot, took up a majority of the run time. Sticking 16 workers who use a lot of aerial offense in a cage is illogical at best, though. So yea, the first part played out like I expected though they did try to add some innovation here. It didn't really look that great and the catch work needs major improvement. The real question is would the end-stretch save this from being completely forgettable? Well, the dive from the top of the cage to the outside during the escape phase was pretty cool. When it came down to just two remaining (Canibal Jr and Black Dragon) and it meant that no masks would be lost I was a bit disappointed, though. Don't get me wrong, I know hair
